CPA’s Job Quality Index reveals that Black Americans and Hispanic Americans suffer from far worse job quality than the total workforce, as measured by the weekly wages of all U.S. production and nonsupervisory employees. These disparities are due to the decline of high quality jobs such as those in the manufacturing sector and the rise of low quality, i.e. low-wage, low-hour jobs in many low-paid service sectors of the economy. The study builds on work CPA did in partnership with Cornell academics in 2019 to extend Job Quality Index analysis to three important U.S. minority groups.
